Okay, so I never, ever play Tiesto records. Not because I don’t like Tiesto, but because I DJ on the Internet and I don’t play major festivals. Well, I don’t play major festivals yet. But, this remix was worth noting. I heard it in a mix that our dear friend, Stonebridge,put together here.
Basement Jaxx, “Never Say Never,” is definitely the record of the summer. Of course, they had to hit it with all kinds of remixes to spread the music far and wide. So, we’ll give this one props. It’s anthemic, big festival sounding, without being too cheesy. So, I give it a pass here on Netmix and we’ll bring it to you because it’s deserving of a listen.
I know…I’ve gone outside my deep house, tech house and straight-up house music leaning roots. What can I say? Sometimes you gotta spread it around, LOL.

We’ve been looking for a remix of Kiesza’sHideaway, a pop house track with deep house leanings that have every 15-year old girl around the world finding a street corner and shooting copycat Instagram videos of themselves dancing like Kiesza. After surfing around the web, we came up with two that we really loved.
The first is this piano stomper from Zac Samuel, a little known producer out of Brighton, U.K., who brings a bit of energy to the track. Here’s YouTube video below.
Sure that was fun, but we wanted something even DEEEPER! Well, say no more. We got it with this version by the Bixel Boys, who by the way don’t seem to really go this deep. Listening to their other stuff on their SoundCloud leads me to believe this duo from Los Angeles – who make “underground tunes for big rooms” – took a left turn and settled it down a bit from their normal big room electronic sound. Heck, we’re not complaining!
We've posted about this a few times already this summer. Sorry for the repetitive info, but Made Events keep announcing new acts for its huge, Electric Zoo Festival, an open air music festival taking place on Randall's Island Park over Labor Day weekend: Saturday, September 5th and Sunday, September 6th, 2009 - 12 noon to 11 pm both days!
Okay, we love the DIY video. Felix the Housecat is saying "*&#@" the record labels, time to 'do it yourself' baby! The track is "Kickdrum." Bomb the bass, call it what you wantâ€”it's big beats and distortion gallore. Just what you'd expect from a track called "Kickdrum." We're definitely diggin this one. It's out this summer on Felix's forthcoming digital thingy, He Was King. Although we heard you can get it here.
